Washington Parish Coalition on Human Services (WPCHS) held its June meeting at the ADAPT Office. The guest speaker was Wendy Castillo, RN with Nurse Family Partnership (NFP). NFP is a program that partners a registered nurse with a first-time mom to provide health education, support, and resources. First time mothers must be less than 28 weeks pregnant and be a WIC or Medicaid recipient. The RN works with the mother until the baby turns two years of age. Anyone can refer a first-time pregnant mom by contacting the office at 985-871-0210 or Wendy’s cell, 504-451-9447.
